View Full Version : win95 scan disk error message

Win'95, while attempting to run scandisk this error message comes up.
'cannot check this drive now because the disk is not properly formatted, or a program such as a disk utility has locked it. Format - or wait for utility to finish - then restart scandisk'
Disk utility?
Can any one help?

The thing I do when mine comes back with something like that, is hit Cntr, Alt, Del, and see exactly what is running. You may be surprised, but also able to fix it from there, by turning most things off, that aren't needed till after scan disk has run.
